Become a leader in your field"
I spent ten great years working for a multi national law firm, but I wanted to work in an environment where I felt I could have more of a say on the direction and future of the firm. The culture of the firm is a genuinely pastoral and supportive environment that other firms profess to have in theory, but often fail to offer in practice. I genuinely believe that Wrigleys is unique in terms of successfully balancing some of these "softer" elements, whilst at the same time maintaining a magic circle reputation for excellence in the work it does and the clients it has.
The work I do in the Charities and Social Economy team means that I am often working with clients and other professionals around the world. The wider team has plenty of scope to delve deeper into a niche area of your interest - at Wrigleys we have true specialists in social finance, community-led housing, employee ownership, and renewable energy amongst others. This means we are uniquely placed to aid our clients in these more unusual areas of the law, but which are at the heart of the social economy.
Wrigleys gives you the freedom and autonomy to use your initiative, approach new markets and really explore new opportunities of your interest. Having a passion for a subject is key to becoming a leader in your field.
I have been at Wrigleys since 2014 and in 2016 I became a partner within the firm. Partnership promotions are based on your ability and your contribution rather than how many years qualified you are, or how long you have been with the firm. This, I believe, is another way in which Wrigleys stands out amongst the crowd and respects it's staff in a material way."
